Cottage Scenes

by Rick Moon

Release Year: 2015

I want to bring you to a place I know of. It’s a place down south, where the trees grow royal and wild under the warm amber lights, where we can play in the dark and wander among the leaves and the cigarette butts.

There’s a house there, a tiny little cottage hidden in a jungle of vines and half remembered melodies, with floors tracked backwards and forwards with magic and melancholies and reptilian fantasies where madmen chased mysteries, where we found and fought off our miseries, where music breathes and our songs filled those four walls through ease and disease. I want to bring you to the place where we saw the cottage scenes.

TIred of Sleeping

by Rick Moon

Release Year: 2012

What’s the story?  I moved to Miami in need of a new beginning. I spent almost a year in a treatment center and I learned to speak about my emotions (sometimes that’s what it takes). It was almost like learning how to walk again.  It was truly a beautiful and positive experience.  I got out and stayed sober for the next 2 years. But this was the first time I was on my own musically speaking, having always been in some form of a band.  So I started writing my own lyrics, a job that I always left to my bandmate at the time and childhood best friend, Luis Del Valle (Buscabulla).  For the first time there was no second opinion.  I think this was the beginning of me finding “my voice”.  To my surprise, the songs that I wrote were honest and profound and not half bad.  Everything I was writing about was very introspective.  I suddenly felt the need to move people.  I wanted to let them know where I had been, where I was, etc.  So I made a pop record in which all of the songs could be singles in their own way.  I went as poppy as I could.  I wanted to reach as many people as possible.  It’s an album of hope and moving forward.
